Hi
it is better to postpone yr trip as kids are along with u. During last week of feb it will terrible cold( specially Dalhousie). Even then if u want to go, better take lot of woolen garments and stay in a good hotel where room heater and gyser will be provided. U can definately see the snow and scenic beauty of Manali and Simla.Simla-dalhousie road condition is very bad.Take care.
carry " disprin and avomin +vely. I personally prefer to visit those places during winter. So best of luck and happy moments of the tour. bye bye

I'll agree with Jasmeet, since you are travelling with kids, it is better to concentrate on one destination, since it will be cold too. Also all three places that you plan to visit are in three different directions. All the best!

Hi Subi,
The climate during Feb in Dalhousie as well as Manali is very cold. If you like to see ICE and you are from Central or South India, it can be a good time for you.

Distance between Manali and Dalhousie is 385 Kms and is almost one day journey. If you have enough holidays in your baggage, then go ahead for the same. Otherwise you should concentrate only one place at a time.

Let me know if you need any more help.

Hi Subi,

February will be definitely cold and may be with a snowfall. You need to carry lots of wollens. Kids as well as seniors might suffer and uncomfortable.

The travel will be through the backrodas between Manali and Dalhousie. Many of the roads in this section will be closed for the vehicles and many will be damaged, too. For comfortable ( relatively speaking ) you need to come down to the plains and again travel up to Dalhousie. Clearly means more distance to cover.

If possible do reschedule the tour to April - May. Please keep in mind that the best tourist season in the sector is actually July - September.

Wish you happy moments of the tour.

The weather in the last week of Feb in that region should be getting better but it will be cold I am sure, so you need to prepare yourself and your younger lot accordingly. As far as going to Dalhousie via Manali is concerned, I don't think you go to Dalhousie via Manali. You have to go to Manali and then come back a few km before Mandi and have to take a right turn on NH-20 for Dalhousie. Thnks..
